What is your favorite NethServer feature/module?

NethServer is an all-in-one server distribution and we have collected a bunch of new modules and features over the last years. What’s your favorite and why?
Because you use it a lot? Because it fits your users/customers needs?
Or just because it’s an awesome feature/module and it’s very powerful.
If you need some input take a look at the software center or this list
I’m really curious about that!

The IpSec implementation. Not current one, but the one will be soon released…
Am I Right? :wink:

I mean current features/modules not in development or planned ones :wink:

The squid implemantation is my favorite.
Before I used nethserver I configured it manual. With nethserver it’s much easier and not so much work :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

That’s interesting, what do you appreciate most about Virtualization module?

Uncomplicated feature rich design

Do you think that our interface is very simple but powerful at the same time?

all the things 4 a small biz server

  • Samba AD
  • Samba share (if ACLs are working)
  • Mail with SOGO
  • Nextcloud
    I will try IRC and Wiki 2

There are a lot of nice powerfull and mostly free solution 4 VM
my Neth 7 will running on a small xenserver HA cluster with 2 nodes

On my mind services and firewall including routing had 2 run on a diffend VM oer better on external hardware. there are things like untangel …

Totally agree with Axel. After looking for a replacement for sbs2011 for quite some time and trying zentyal alfresco etc… I saw a mention on another bbs to nethserver. The combination of email ad and nextcloud are perfect for a small business.

So, Email + NextCloud is the best mix

Email, Active Directory, and NextCloud. I also agree that SoGo should be used for groupware as it syncs all data with Thunderbird which integrates nicely with quickbooks desktop software.

ddclient would be good.

You’re lucky! Check the ddclient module by @stephdl

SOGo, followed a close second by SOGo.

Getting OpenChange (with external AD) working would be even better.

@gbr OpenChange, Zentyal spent a lot on it and it didn’t work so well as far as I know.
Any other vote?

This I right, I tried before, it shows always synchronization errors, the secratary function didn’t work.

@gbr Please have a look at CalDav Synchronizer for Outlook, it works good.
